class TaurusMessageBox(err_type=None, err_value=None, err_traceback=None, parent=None, designMode=False)[source]

Bases: PyQt4.QtGui.QDialog

A panel intended to display a taurus error. Example:

dev = taurus.Device("sys/tg_test/1")
exc_info = None
try:
    print dev.read_attribute("throw_exception")
except PyTango.DevFailed, df:
    exc_info = sys.exc_info()

if exc_info:
    msgbox = TaurusMessageBox(*exc_info)
    msgbox.show()
